Way back in October of last year, we heard that Chino Moreno‘s Deftones side-project Crosses (often stylized ✝︎✝︎✝︎) were working on new material. Now, the band has announced that they’ve signed a worldwide deal with Warner Records.
“I just moved into a new place a little over a month ago, so I’ve been setting up my studio room in here,” Chino told horror site Bloody Disgusting back in October, “and I broke out some of that [unreleased] stuff from then, and I started working on it! Now that the Deftones record is done and there’s no touring really in the near future, I kinda have time to work on stuff so I’m definitely going to dig in and see where I can go with that…I really, really like that project. The best part about it for me was no-one knew we were making that record even. We put it out as EPs first and we just kinda dropped out of nowhere. Making music without any expectations was super freeing and fun. I really love doing it.”
But as The PRP reports, yesterday the band’s own Shaun Lopez (also of Far) released the following statement via social media: “Very happy to announce that @crossesmusic recently signed a worldwide deal with @warnerrecords. Looking forward to working with such an amazing crew. Hi fives to the bro @chinowmoreno, we did it . Shout out to our manager @jamesthrogmorton for leading the way. Also, big thanks to @joe_pepin for always believing in me. Last but certainly not least, the dynamic duo that really run the damn show, the wives @amychance @risamoramoreno. Appreciate u ”
